This collection of the 12 best egg recipes includes everything from go-to breakfasts like cheesy baked eggs, egg muffins and breakfast burritos to company-worthy quiches and casseroles to favorites like deviled eggs and egg salad.
Eggs are kinda my fave.
I have at least 2 cartons of eggs in my fridge at all times. They may not both be full, but I get a little twitchy if I don’t at least have a dozen eggs on hand.
And I don’t even make eggs daily! I start work at 6:30 a.m. so I don’t have time to make the kids scrambled eggs during the week.
And while I know they don’t take long, nor does a fried egg, it’s just a bit too much effort for me when we’ve got school and work and all the things happening.
Come weekends, though, a huge pan of scrambled eggs is absolutely happening. Usually with plenty of microwave bacon and a batch of my easy homemade biscuits.
Breakfast is kinda my fave, too.
And eggs are a big part of that, though I certainly don’t restrict them to the mornings.
No, no, eggs are super versatile and great any time of day!
(Not to mention all the baking I do, which requires on-hand eggs. They really are a true kitchen staple!)
So today I’m celebrating ALL the deliciousness of eggs with this round-up of the 12 best egg recipes.
These are the ones I turn to again and again. Several came from my own mom, in fact, and have been part of my life for a long time.
Others are newer and have become fast favorites.
And yes, some of these are more “occasion” egg recipes. Not the kind of thing you’d make just any ole weekend, but are perfect for keeping in your back pocket for guests or holidays, when you need to fancy up your breakfast or brunch routine a bit.
Oh, and also, I divided these up into basic breakfast, brunch and lunch categories, so you can find what you’re looking for a little easier.
I hope you’ll browse these delicious egg recipes and find some new favorites for your house!
